6 Things We All Hate About Rubbish

6 Things We All Hate About Rubbish

Think about it – is there anything to love about rubbish? Not really. Everyone hates rubbish, but dealing with rubbish is something that everyone needs to do.

As the owner of 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins, a company that offers rubbish removal in Brisbane, I know very well how much people hate dealing with rubbish. Today, we’ll take a look at some of the most common things that people hate about rubbish.

1. Rubbish is breeding ground for pests

Overflowing rubbish bins are the ideal breeding ground for pests including insects, vermin, germs and bacteria. Moreover, overflowing waste also attracts flies – and these are the same flies that go about dropping their offspring just about everywhere. Flies are carriers of several infectious diseases such as typhoid, enteric fever, gastroenteritis, food poisoning and several other major illnesses. Apart from flies, small animals such as rats, stray dogs and foxes also thrive in rubbish.

2. It is hard to get rid of large amounts of rubbish

Dealing with small amounts of rubbish on a regular basis is usually not a problem for people. However, getting rid of large amounts of rubbish is a different matter altogether. While there is the big task of collecting all rubbish in one place, there’s also the problem of getting rid of the waste in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner. Getting rid of large amounts of rubbish can prove to be a costly and time-consuming affair.

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to get rid of large amounts of rubbish – by hiring rubbish removal in Brisbane. Rubbish removal companies, such as ours at 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins offer junk skip bins on hire. You can use our junk skips to remove as much as 12m³ of waste at once.

3. Overflowing rubbish causes pollution

One of the biggest problems with overflowing rubbish is that it causes air pollution. When rubbish is improperly disposed of, it releases various harmful chemicals such as methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide, among others. These chemicals cause a range of respiratory diseases and other adverse health disorders. We can usually identify polluted air by the odour of overflowing rubbish.

4. Rubbish causes soil contamination

While overflowing rubbish causes air pollution, it also causes soil contamination. Rubbish and liquid waste often seep through the soil and contaminate groundwater. Also, overflowing rubbish often ends up reaching water bodies and affects the entire marine ecosystem.

5. Direct handling of waste is unhealthy

People who handle their waste directly face higher health risks than those who don’t. Direct handling of waste can cause various skin infections and chronic diseases, not to mention the risk of accidents.

Instead of handling your waste directly, you should always rely on the services of a company that specialises in rubbish removal in Brisbane, such as 4 Waste Walk-In Skip Bins. Our professional rubbish removers are trained and proficient in handling waste in a safe manner.


There are many things to hate about rubbish. Rubbish is the ideal breeding ground for pests. It is quite difficult to get rid of large amounts of waste in one go. Overflowing rubbish causes air pollution, soil pollution and water pollution and it causes a range of adverse health disorders and respiratory diseases.
